A blog for Meadowridge School and the educational community.
Our Middle School and High School Students delved into extended inquiry, real-world application, and deeper exploration of curricular topics during the year’s first Classroom Without Walls (CWOW). Let’s find out about the learning and fun our students and teachers had during their latest CWOW.
Our students have so many amazing stories to share. The Meadowridge Awards and Recognition Committee want to recognize the work of our incredible students. Each month, teachers in Elementary, Middle, and High School nominate a student who has demonstrated characteristics of the learner profiles in a memorable and inspiring way.
Founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and Psychologist Marc Brackett begs the question: when did you last ask someone how they felt and wanted a truthful answer? Further, when did you last give a truthful answer? We ask this question multiple times a day as a common courtesy rather than a genuinely inquisitive query.

Through our Gryphons of the Month, it’s our hope that, as a community, we hear the “stories of our students.”
In celebration of the new proposed playground by our Playground Task Force members, we wanted to know what motivated them to join the task force and how they envision the reimagining our outdoor play spaces.
We want to give thanks to those within our Board of Governors for continuing to support Meadowridge. We asked them to share their thoughts on why they decided to donate back to the School.
Things were going well, and he liked his new school, but there were still some small-but-noticeable differences that made him miss Meadowridge. He missed the extra care his teachers showed, the extra attention they paid to academics, yes, but also all the other things that make us who we are. Omid also missed his peers and the way they carried themselves, a mix of respect and manners that had been instilled in them early on at the school.
We interviewed our new staff and faculty that joined Meadowridge this school year to ask what encouraged them to support the School.
For three school families, donating their entire MEID back to Meadowridge was an obvious choice. Their love of the school moved them to give to the people, programs, and facilities that will not only benefit our current students, but the generations of students to come.
Old milk crates, used tires, metal coils, kitchen utensils (that have seen better days), cable drums, thingymabobbers, thingymajiggs, and odds and ends, are just a few of the many peculiar items, or “loose parts,” you’ll find in the Loose Parts Play Space used by the Junior Kindergarten students.
